- ABOUT LAKELAND
As a graduate of Lakeland College, you automatically become a member of the Lakeland College Alumni Association. The purpose of this organization is to promote fellowship among alumni, foster continued growth, and support the mission of the association and the college. Many successful and influential alumni represent their graduating classes and voice their concerns to the Association.
The Board of Directors is made up of three groups of nine representatives from various classes and professions who serve a rotating three-year term. Each year two members of the graduating class, one from the day program and one from the Kellett School, are selected to serve one-year terms as class representatives. Two student representatives have also been added to the board - the president of Student Association [SA] and the president of Lakeland College - College Activity Board [LC-CAB].
All board members also serve on one of three task forces; Alumni Development, Alumni Events and Board Affairs.

Can you tell why my heart is set a-swinging
With a vibrant motion each recurring fall?
Do you fathom why my soul begins a-singing,
Like a maiden answering her lover's call?
A place there is that claims my fond affection,
Fondly drawing me as does a mother's heart.
No matter where I roam, a place that's always home,
Of God's great lovely world, a goodly part.
O, Lakeland, My Alma Mater,
Heaven's blessings rest upon thee day by day;
And may the God above, in bounty and in love,
Thy goodness unto me, thy child, repay.
